This place has amazing tamales and they’re cheap as hell. The flavor are green sauce and mole poblano (brown) sauce. They’re both great. It’s located right beside Home Depot. The outside seating area is nice for a “food truck” although this thing doesn’t look like...More

My daughter and I were on Aurora and decided to stop at El Camion for lunch. Tacos were DELISH and they even have a few tables right next to the truck, so on a nice day, you don't have to eat in your car. Highly...More

There is a part of me that doesn't want to write a review of the El Camion food truck....why? I want to keep it a secret! That would not be fair to the owners who put their heart and soul into their food. I went...More

Very reasonable prices with a lot of meat in every item, amazing sauces to as supposed to complement Mexican food, a great place to eat any time.

This is the best Mexican you will find in Seattle. Screw the upscale Mexican. If you want real authentic Mexican, this is as close as you will get.. I think this is confirmed by the constant customer traffic of ethnic Mexican-Americans eating here..

Just a food truck you say? I say try it. I've sampled numerous menu items at this little food truck and have always found it fresh and delicious. I've tried the veggie burrito and veggie quesadilla, the fish burrito, fish tacos, carnitas and homemade tamales....More
